Who am I?

I was instrumental in establishing the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA) in 1977, and became its first Program Director.

I fostered 20 children from Aboriginal communities in Victoria, as well as having six of my own.

I advocated for the adoption legislation in Victoria to prevent Aboriginal families unnecessarily surrendering their children.

I was also involved in the establishment of the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC) in the early 1980s.
